DEADCUTS & special guests S*M*A*S*H + The Metatrons
DEADCUTS are not your standard guitar quartet, sure..you could lazily peg them as a gang of survivors, the hard yards achieved with a mix of success and near misses to draw from their previous bands (Senseless Things, Jolt, Miranda Sex Garden, Wildhearts etc) and a songwriting pedigree that bore fruit with Keds co-writing The Libertines anthem 'Can't Stand Me Now'. So, the personnel then... theres the things most Senseless; Mark Keds and Cass Browne (hits skins and cyms most recently with Gorillaz) Mark MCcarthy, bassist for (Wonder Stuff/Queen Adreena/Mick Jones) and Jerome Alexandre formerly of indie punk band (The Skuzzies). If you like your music with a hint of malvolence, steeped in the dark cloak of night but with a smattering of glamour then this is the band for you. If you like The Libertines or Fat White Family then you've probably caught before (they were invited to join The Libs for their 30 Jan o2 gig) Seeya on the 14th May.
Chief support will be from S*M*A*S*H - formed in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, England, this viscerl trio, comprising Ed Borrie (vocals/guitar), Rob Hague (drums) and Salvador Alessi (bass). Recruiting Rob from a nearby squat, Sal moved over from singing to playing bass when the original bass player failed to turn up for rehearsals. To this day Sal still plays the instrument "wrong side up". Their first gig did not take place until early 1992, and by the following year the New Musical Express had decided they sounded like "the Stone Roses on PCP', while two singles, "Real Surreal"/"Drugs Again" and "Shame"/"Lady Love Your Cunt" were released on their own Le Disques De Popcor Records. The second single was Single Of The Week in both the NME and Melody Maker. Their reputation was built on tireless touring, and their popularity was enhanced by a cheap entry price policy.
